Been hacking on the new dia canvas. The stuff is in the
dia-newcanvas module. I am currently working on some of the
DiaCanvas / DiaCanvasView interactions, which is
interesting. Hopefully the canvas will be useful to other
people doing multi view canvas stuff. It should also add
minimal overhead to people doing single view stuff (do same
sort of initialisation as for GnomeCanvas, but also create a
view), and you get transparent print support.

I got legOS to work with my lego. I should post the RPMs
I made to the Red Hat contrib archive. Being able to write
real programs for the RCX is a lot better than using the
provided software. From the legOS docs, it says you can
send any IR message to another RCX, including ones such as
`erase firmware’ :)
